MYSTERIOUSLY-DELETED JOHNS HOPKINS STUDY REFUTES COVID-19 DEATH STATISTICS
“Johns Hopkins published a study on its website, and then the study mysteriously disappeared,” said Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers Education Foundation (TEF). “One has to wonder what ‘they’—whoever ‘they’ may be—did not want the public to see.”
“Yanni Gu (see source below) reveals some interesting conclusions of the Johns Hopkins study which, if true, have serious implications for the discussion regarding the need for the devastating lockdown crippling the U.S. economy, especially since the lockdown may be based on flawed interpretations of COVID-19 data.”
“Fortunately, once something appears on the Internet, it lives forever,” said Tobin. “The deleted study has been retrieved and analyzed, and here are some important revelations.”
•The Johns Hopkins study posits that COVID-19 is nowhere near the disaster we’re being told it is. Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September. Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19.
•The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals, Briand said.
• According to Briand, not only has COVID-19 had no effect on the percentage of deaths of older people, but it has also not increased the total number of deaths. In contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.
•The COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19.
•Briand states that all of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. No evidence was found to the contrary.
•The article concludes, “In other words, the effect of COVID-19 on deaths in the U.S. is considered problematic only when it increases the total number of deaths or the true death burden by a significant amount in addition to the expected deaths by other causes. Since the crude number of total deaths by all causes before and after COVID-19 has stayed the same, one can hardly say, in Briand’s view, that COVID-19 deaths are concerning.”
